Lake Shelbyville – Enjoy the outdoors? Looking for a quiet place to RV this summer? Officials from the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, Lake Shelbyville, are looking for volunteers to help take care of Opossum Creek Campground, and the Visitor Center at Lake Shelbyville. The campground volunteer would be responsible for mowing within and around the Opossum Creek Campground. The Visitor Center volunteer would be responsible for greeting and assisting visitors with general questions about the lake, directing telephone calls, and gift shop sales. The positions can be accomplished by an individual volunteer; however, a pair of volunteers for this position is ideal.
All equipment and supplies, for all of these positions, are provided by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In return for approximately 20 hours of volunteered service, volunteers will be provided a free campsite that includes electric, water, and sewer hookups. Volunteers who work 250 hours or more at federal recreation sites also earn a free annual pass. For more information please call (217) 774-3951 Ext: 7004 or visit the Lake Shelbyville Project office at 1989 State Hwy 16, in Shelbyville, IL or email Dustin.A.Wolf@usace.army.mil
